Emily and Evan enjoyed a trip to the Olympics in 2010 as the #3 American dance team, but his injury forced them to take an entire season off. Assuming they return in the 2011-12 season, where do you think they will fit in on the totem poll of US teams? Mind you, they have yet to compete a short dance in competition.

Do they replace Chock and Zuerlein as #3 or will they have to settle for fourth best?
Or do they shock everyone with a top two or first place finish?

nowhere, unless D/W retire.

I think C/Z will lose out to S/B and K/G-S next season. In fact, they pretty much were passed by K/G-S this season, but for one fall at nationals.

I think S/B will be team #3, barring recuperation problems.

Not accurate. K/G-S were fifth, and were 16 points behind the third place C/Z. Had they not fallen, they would have finished in 4th ahead of the Hubbells.

They fit with the Sp/Z group ;)
I hope they quickly rebound and are among the three National medalists. I missed them quite a bit this year: their unison, extension and personality.

C&Z did better than expected at worlds, and more importantly they are with Shpilband.

I don't see the USFSA dumping them unless S&B have a stellar fall season, (Do they get GP events next year?), or C&Z have an awful season.

No way in hell they're beating the Shibs.

Until Zueva's students competing, S/B can only hope for miracle.

don't forget that Samuelson and Bates also moved to Z/S camp :P (after the 2009/2010 season). at least I haven't heard about any other changes.

IN NO TECHNIK here, but I don't see any reason why S/B wouldn't be neck and neck with the Shibs, assuming S/B are able to restart exactly at the point where they left off before Evan's injury.

Also, any news on whether Evan is all recuperated and back on the ice?

Hmm, I'm not sure. I think they'll definitely be behind the Shibs and Davis/White but they may be able to beat Chock/Zuerlein for the third spot. Although, as someone else mentioned, Kriengkrairut and Giulietti-Schmitt might be a factor without a fall, and I'm not sure what the Hubbells are doing. I don't think Samuelson/Bates would have trouble beating the Hubbells now though.

He-Hubbell isn't skating anymore. She is skating with Zach Donohue.

I think the Shibs may have a lock on second in the US, but I feel like S/B can easily pass C/Z. It's sad though, because to me, the most interesting US couple right now is K/G-S. I just wish they could get on the technical level of the other teams.

I would expect them to be the third ranked team, below D/W and the Shibs.
